  • Wow, how does Bloodbath's guitar tone sound so clear in A tuning???

    What amps and guitars do these guys play, their stuff is in B and A on 6 string guitars, and the tone is so clear and heavy. It isn't muddy at all. I'm refering to the second album by the way.

    That tone is goddamn brutal... Sounds really saturated, maybe solid state. Doesn't Dan Swano usually use some high gain distortion pedal?

      I heard for the first album they ran a long chain of multiple distortion pedals that were popular during the 90's death metal days into an amp (forgot which one).

      This could have been a rumor, but maybe not and maybe they did the same thing for the second one.

        Hmm, well I know for Swano's solo album he used some cheap ass modeler, but he was in E and drop D for that, and the tone isn't as good as the second Bloodbath album. I've seen him playing an Ibanez guitar before, maybe an RG?

          That is amazing tone indeed. With both Tagtgren and Swano on board though you just know the tone is going to own.

            I was wondering what amps he used myself. He had a link/address on his website where you could try emailing him, the last couple of times I've been on that site though its been under construction. Check it out mang!

                That's why you have thicker gauge strings. Not 9-42s

                  the tone on that second album is very much the dude from katatonias tone - i think he calls himself blackheim or something. - He had a band called diabolical masquerade - the tone was very similair.

                  as far as i know - he was the guitarist for bloodbath - swano was the drummer.

                    i want to know that...i will eventually post a thread specific to what my tone is like. I play in A# and its tough. i think i need thicker strings, and less gain always helps.

                      Clear and heavy? Simpel... B A R I T O N E guitar. You won't believe how big the difference is before you try.

                        www.bloodbath.biz

                        Swano and Anders Nystrom aka Blackheim (Blakkkheim is his eBay user name) regularly chat up the users on the forum AND usually offer first choice when it comes to personal equipment sales and stuff. Pretty cool guys.

                        Tone on Resurrection through Carnage = Boss Heavy Metal (before it became Metal Zone)

                        As far as Blackheim's guitar sound. He uses a custom built guitar from ES guitars: http://www.esguitars.com/
                        (he's the goofy fella on the front page covered in a blood (paint) soaked t-shirt - pic taken at Wacken Metal Fest.)

                          Diabolical Masquerede - Death's Design is one of the best albums EVER in my opinion!

                            Well really, the Heavy Metal (HM-2) became the Hyper Metal (HM-3, which was quite bollocks really). The Heavy Metal is nothing like the MT-2 from what I recall, although it's been several years since I owned either.

                              I run my Heavy Metal through a Fender Champ for the ultimate in metal-dom! It's also a pretty good laugh.
